CCEE1517 - Hug an Australian Day

Frances is celebrating a holiday in her country this week -- Hug an Australian Day.  Her challenge to the CCEE Stampers was to use a cute critter that would be huggable -- bonus points if we used an animal native to Australia.  I was going to go with Hugh Jackman but decided against it at the last minute!  I have no Australian animal stamps.  I even tried to find a kangaroo or a koala at both Michaels and Hobby Lobby with no luck.  So I resorted to the internet, where I found a line drawing of a koala that was downloadable at Deviant Art.  I colored him with Copic markers.  I printed the sentiments on the computer.


Check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see if the rest of the team had better luck with stamps than I did.

LOL, I have at least 3 different koala stamps - and that's rubber, not even the digi I used inside. You found a darling one, and the green background is just amazing.
I have a DVD of Hugh Jackman when he was in the stage version of Oklahoma in London some years ago - towards the end of the run I think they decided to make the film version of it. I'd never realised how well he could sing, although it was the guy who played Jud who was really incredible.
